Default Since we now have national events

How about having some local events going and trying to start some local clubs for gatherings. I mean, I am or was involved in a local club but they are now to ghetto to do anything. I want to try to see if the Chicago bonny owners would like to have meetings and events for some weekends. Same for others in differnt areas If theyare more than one bonney owner in your town tryinmg to setup a local club. What do you all say?


its like 8 or 9 here in the Chicago area that I can think of and about I guess 12-15 in the Minniapolis area? See what I am getting at? If we start as a small group meeting up and doing things for the coummunity or just having fun ourselves, who knows how much growth we would have.

I have a local meet almost everyday. Trav comes over on his lunch break, We look up things that he wants to know about and We're making him a little to-do list that includes Yella Terra. We work on his car Thurs and Fri, mine on Sat and Sun.

There'* no reason you can't go and set stuff up. MNBC does have a few things in the works to get members more interested in the Club. Myself, BonneMe and harofreak get together now and then in the 'Kato area and do stuff.

Well both Ontario and Minnesota both have their own web sites and have frequent gatherings. From the look of things Illinois and Florida could start up their own sites now too and go from there?

Not too may Bonnevilles in Western Canada, all trucks and very few cars

I wasnt speaking of a site. I was talking about an actual meeting with the cars. Like have a desgnated spot to gather and meet up, talk about events for the upcoming weekends, chating in person, stuff like that. All at a local spot so ppl can meet off line. But for like local ppl with bonnies. Like if me, Kenn, Taylor, ADbear, fuddy and some more chi-towners met up and In minnesota, Jason, 95SSEi, harofreak, SSEiMN, smellbird, etc for an example. Thats what I was speaking of. Not just for a special event but like on a regualr once a week thing.

I like the idea of Real car club, But don't think we should meet every week.
Maybe have a monthly meeting. But the idea is a Good one....................,
